The purpose of the Bowman Sustainable Land Development Invited Seminar Series is to provide students access to current topics, projects, and initiatives within sustainable development and design. By inviting industry professionals to also attend the seminar to receive professional development credit, students have the opportunity to learn and network with both from the speakers and the attendees. Featured speakers represent municipalities, designers, owners/developers, academics, and others focused on sustainable development and design.
